Dillon Gee and the Mets have reportedly made a deal to avoid arbitration, leaving Lucas Duda as the final holdout.
Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports the deal for $3.625 million was finalized late Friday night. The two sides had exchanged numbers earlier in the day; Gee asked for $4.05 million while the Mets offered $3.2 million. The final figure is the difference between the two. He made $527,375 in 2013.
Dillon Gee was pitching poorly halfway through the season and was in danger of losing his spot in the rotation when something clicked and he had a superb second half. He finished with an ERA of 3.62 after having it bloat to 5.20 as late as June 5. He led the team in wins with 12, the only Mets pitcher to achieve double-digit wins.
Gee seems to be establishing himself as a solid middle of the rotation guy, putting him in line for an even bigger payday next year.
